    OTG Needs You 2016




    Hello all, as outlined in the monthly address message the Old Timers Guild is in need of its membership's help. As I am sure you know, we have never charged a fee to become and maintain membership here in the Old Timers Guild. Our forums, Mumble server, Guild Accounts, Add-Ons, etc are paid for solely by the donations of our membership. We believe that empowering our membership to define what OTG is worth to them makes us stronger. We are currently coming to the end of the funds we raised more than three years ago. We were so successful then that we didn't need to hold a fundraiser for the 2014 or 2015 calendar years. Just as we did then, below is the complete transparent breakdown of our finances and where we are and what we need to raise to stay operating for another year.

    Everything is paid up through July.

    Current Fund Balance: $1260

    Breakdown by expense

    Old Timers Guild Site - Cost $478.80 per 6 months. $957.00 per year - (This is subject to change as we may still need to upgrade for performance reasons)
    Mumble - $459 per 6 months. $918 per year - this includes both public and private servers
    Admin Game Accounts -EvE - $38.85 per 3 months. $155 per year - This is the only game we presently pay for.
    Misc Expenses: ~$500 per year (one-off game expenses)
    LLC Income Tax - Varies from year to year, but can range from $0 to $1000+ depending upon income received during a fiscal year.

    Minimum Total Needed = $2,530 per year (excluding LLC taxes)


    Fundraising Goal = $3000

    As of 3/17/16, Total Donations = $5318!!
    (Donate $50 or less and Alvok will send you pics of his shaved balls. Donate $100 and he won't!)



    All funds raised will be used to support OTG. You can donate via PayPal by clicking here:


    Donations are a one time charge, we DO NOT do recurring subscriptions so that is why everything is set for 10 years.

    If you cannot or do not want to use PayPal you can send me a PM and I can provide you mailing information (No Stalkers Please ) if you would like to send a personal check or money order. I will ensure your contribution is updated on the site.


    All we ask is, if you can help, every dollar is greatly appreciated. We know times are tough for many of you and RL always comes first so give if and what you can.


    I will keep this updated throughout the Month and On behalf of all of OTG and the Admin Team thank you for your generosity and making this the greatest gaming community around.

    Oddly enough earlier today I was in the middle of messaging you Cefwyn to have you jog my memory on how to donate funds. Then I got distracted and never got back to finishing the message. Was going to ask again later tonight.

    ... and donation sent!

    I got mine in before you posted, only by about 30 minutes though. Just didn't post.

    I am sure others beat us though...

    Proud to be a member! Donated AND bought an OTG coffee cup! My 18-year-old saw it while forced to do his share of washing dishes and informed me scornfully that I am "such a nerd." (Sniff!) These are the moments I treasure.
